That sounds more like over arousal than anxiety. She basically has no "off switch". While a sport might be a good idea for mental and physical exercise, teaching a dog to settle is always a good idea, and teaches them a off switch. Kikipup on YouTube has some good training advice. This is one of her videos on teaching a dog to settle.

For a heavy duty mental workout that is really tiring, but without the risk of physical over exertion, I suggest that you look into nosework. My favorite online training school's next session will be starting up December 1st. This is their regular introduction class (that uses essential oils) Fenzi Dog Sports Academy - N101J: NW101 - Introduction to Nosework and this is their "pre-beginner" class that uses food. Fenzi Dog Sports Academy - NW170: Building Blocks of Nosework - Before Odor Tuition starts at only $65, and there is a fantastic Facebook community support system.
